100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Hi BIC!

 

A lot of us have talked about our huge lipstick collections, and with the passing of another National Lipstick Day, I took stock of mine. I have about 200 lipsticks and glosses and realized, I only wear about 20 of them! So I'm challenging myself (and whoever else wants to join) to use more of them. I'm going to try to wear a different lipstick every day for the next 100 days.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

So pretty @mermadelove!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @jozkid! 💋

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

That's a beautiful color and sheen! Great to see you again @mermadelove!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@MissPuff thanks, doll!!! 

Between health issues and log in issues it’s been hard getting on for a while!

This formula is so fantastic! I have four from the collection. COMPLETELY grit free and great wear!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Day 16: YSL Glossy Stain Lip Color in # 11 Rouge Gouache.

 

1C4C025B-2FF1-4F31-BD5F-9EED17A85209.jpeg

 

I had to try one after seeing @jozkid wear these, so I bought one during the Sephora sale. It’s glossy! And not too sticky! It has a strange doe foot applicator... kinda spongy and weirdly soft/flexible, moreso that similarly wide doe feet. Took a bit to get used to. That and the scent, which is fruity floral and I can kinda smell-taste it for about 30 minutes after application. And it doesn’t wear nearly as long as the Lancôme L’Absolu Lacquers—but I didn’t really expect it to, so that wasn’t much of a letdown to me. Despite those cons, I still really like this gloss. I’m keeping it. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne That looks like pretty good pigment for a gloss.  Did you have to layer it?  It look fabulous on you.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @RGbrown and @sprocketta! Yep, that’s 3 coats. A single coat of this wasn’t patchy, it was just very sheer. 2 coats built the color up to a light stain that looked quite nice. But I wanted to see if I could build the gloss up to opaque, so I applied a 3rd layer. The gloss builds really well without getting clumpy or patchy/streaky.

 

When it wears off, it cracks a bit at lip lines—so this is one I’ll need to carry out with me to reapply as needed. But it never feels uncomfortable, and I probably won’t have to reapply it often. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOneUnidentified

Gorgeous!!

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Smell taste! That's exactly how I think of the YSL frangrance/perfume in their lipsticks. I love their Tatouge formula, but the scent is so strong and weird, and I can always taste it a little when I first apply or lick my lips. Not bad enough to stop wearing the lipsticks, but I do always wonder by YSL products are so HEAVILY scented.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@MissPuff When I bought this, I was at the YSL section smelling lots of the lipsticks and wondering if I’d be able to taste the scent. 😄 I don’t usually wear YSL so I didn’t expect everything to be so heavily perfumed. Luckily it’s not migraine- or sinus-triggering for me, unlike some other scented makeup lines I’ve tried. But I wish companies would dial down the perfume in makeup—especially in foundation, concealer, and skin tint. A lot of Lancôme’s skin care items are scented, though not as strongly or persistently as YSL, and I kinda wish they’d reduce that a bit. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Yay @WinglessOne!  I love this on you!  So glad I didn’t steer you wrong. It’s amazing how much more purple it is on me. I love how this color reads on you. And now hearing the comparison to the Lancôme, I’m going to have to try one of those out

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @jozkid for both the compliment and inspiration! In real life, it’s slightly more pink-rosy red on me than it looks in the photo. I hope you like the Lancôme gloss if you try one! 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@WinglessOne Wow, really lovely shade on you! It flatters you well. A great everyday shade! I hope you reach for it a lot. 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

Thanks @alexasteph! Heh, my definition of “everyday shade” is a bit different from most people’s, but I’ll probably get a good bit of wear out of this one. I also don’t do seasonal lipstick shades... If I feel I can’t wear it whenever I want—in any month/season I want—then it’s not in my collection. Smiley Happy

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

A wee bit of face spam today; I tried and documented two today (it was gonna be three but I got lazy lol). I also got tired of the same old "proper" pose, so I had a little fun with my pics 😁

 

First up, NARS Satin Pencil in Rikugien. In contrast to the Velvet Matte pencils, I adore these. The color is...my lips but shimmery...which is not my usual thing, but I'm gonna keep it anyways since I've already decimated my NARS collection, and maybe one day I'll need something not-berry 😋IMG_20180905_124921717.jpgEh, fine, whatever Smiley Tongue

 

 

Next up is Stila Matte'ificent Metal in Flamant. While I love the brights, I don't typically go for the screaming neon pinks, which makes this one rather unique to my collection. And I really like the color and the finish, but the formula just didn't work for me. I tried it twice, over balm and over primer, and both times it was just...odd. It wasn't patchy, per se, but it was almost like it was separating, full of fine lines that didn't necessarily match my lip lines. And after a couple of hours, the usual cracking and pilling started, so it's a goner. I have UD Big Bang, which I think is a similar shade but with glitter, but I wouldn't mind locating something with a more shimmery finish like this one instead of the chunky glitter...that's on my wish list to seek out one day 👍IMG_20180905_125612725.jpg

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

You look so disappointed in that first pic @RGbrown  Rikugien isn't bad, but it's not as great on you as some of those berries.  You ROCK those.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@sprocketta

aw shucks, thanks so much Smiley Happy

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@RGbrown hehe, I love your faces Smiley Happy your lips look lovely too, Rikugien has never shown up on me, it's like a shimmery balm on my lips.

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@MissPuffUnidentified

Thanks so much! 💜

Perhaps I should use up Rikugien as a balm 😅

NARS needs to expand the colors in the Satin pencils...I love the formula but only saw a couple of shades I liked. I guess it's better for my wallet that way though 😂

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@RGbrown Both look nice! I can’t get Rikugien to show up on me, it was decluttered long ago! 

Re: 100 Days of Lipstick Challenge

@alexasteph

haha, yeah, it didn't really show up on me either, color-wise at least. I could tell it was there only by the shimmer lol.
